The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa-New Zealand, the Rt Rev Richard Dawson, blesses our plants at Griffith Gardens on the 125th anniversary of the 125th anniversary of the decision to begin a mission to Chinese people resident in Auckland. The Mustard reminds us of Jesus parable about small beginnings leading to great thing.

In the Bible, hyssop was used as a sign of God's healing power. On the cross, Jesus was given drink on a hyssop branch. ACPC wants to be a sign of hope in Jesus in the City of Auckland, and to grow in to His Kingdom. AND, our apple tree has its fitrst apple! Hope is blooming, fragile perhaps, but growing in Auckland City!
